Lightning Win: Ben Bishop To The Rescue
Posted By News Desk On April 5, 2013 @ 9:04 am In Florida News,main feature,NHL | No Comments
The knock against the Tampa Bay Lightning trading for Ben Bishop* was that he’s only put up nice numbers in a small sample size. That same criticism can be lobbed at his great first game on Thursday night, but don’t blame the Bolts for feeling at least a little optimistic.
Bishop stopped all 45 shots as Tampa Bay dominated the Carolina Hurricanes 5-0. That 45-for-45 performance matches a franchise record for saves in a shutout, according to Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times.
This ties the two Southeast Division teams with identical 16-18-2 records for 34 points in 36 games.
